SuSE, openSUSE Last week the openSUSE conference took place in Nuremberg, Germany. Instead of deciding to fork a major desktop, the conference focused on 'collaboration across borders' and the results are showing. Fedora visitors worked with openSUSE developers to integrate systemd and dracut in openSUSE 11.4, LibreOffice held their first conference track, project Bretzn (let's make developers' life easier) was announced and it became known that Mageia discusses use of the openSUSE Build Service.

Instead of deciding to fork a major desktop

Hehe, read Jono Bacon's latest post, apparently removing the most important UI element in Gnome 3.0 (i.e. Gnome Shell) together with assorted stuff to replace all of that with Ubuntu developed elements is not enough to call it a fork!

They're free to do what they want, that's the beauty (and danger) of free software, but why are they so afraid to call things with their proper name?

A perplexed Ubuntu user...
